DIFF 365 Films & Schedule Newton
Rollover film poster for options
Will run from 11 - 24 January, 2018
Venue: VOX Cinemas, Cinema (9), Mall of the Emirates – Dubai
Newton’, the second feature from Indian filmmaker Amit V. Masurkar, promises to have audiences both laughing and engrossed with its charming take on a political satire. The film centres around Newton Kumar (Rajkummar Rao), a rookie government clerk sent on election duty to the conflict-ridden jungles of Chhattisgarth, India against formidable odds – including guerrilla attacks, apathetic security forces and the visit of a foreign reporter. Despite the circumstances, Newton tries his best to conduct a fair voting process in the region.

In an incredible and endearing performance that has commanded standing ovations at screenings around the world, Rajkummar Rao embodies the role of Newton with innocence and intelligence. Rounding out the cast is Anjali Patil and the show-stealing Pankaj Tripathi.
